About this Item

This book looks brand new. No tears or chips, no names or writing and dustjacket encased in brand new mylar cover.The photography of Cristobal Von Rothkirch is astoundingly beautiful and takes up the vast majority of the book, though there is a long essay at front by Juan Pablo Ruiz (in English), as well as chapter text by Carlos Mauricio Vega, again in English. The reader is led on an incredible journey through the Andes Mountains on a slow ascent that cover the villages in the foothills, the Andean forest, the high moorland, the upper high moorland, and the snow-capped peaks. There is also a chapter devoted to the mountain and man. You will take in farmland, the serenity of deep forests, transparent water, vast open spaces and endless sky. But you will also see up close the ecosystem of the high moorlands which is crucial to the conservation of water, as well as ancient glacial beds and perpetual snow. If you enjoyed the BBC production "The Planet Earth" you will love this book.Oversized at 12" tall. Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 17139K

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
